The Seed: Past, Present, and Future
Thursday, September 14 to Sunday, September 17
SMU-in-Taos at Fort Burgwin Taos, NM
The Taos chapter is excited to be hosting their third state conference since the chapter was created in 1999. Local historic sites, such as the Taos Pueblo and the church of San Francisco de Asis, stay the same, but there have been some changes: Taos is becoming as well known for its music scene as its art, and we are proud to have in our backyard the second newest National Monument in New Mexico – the Rio Grande del Norte. Several of the offered field trips will take you onto monument lands.

From Ponderosa to Prickly Pear · Exploring the Native Plants of New Mexico
The Native Plant Society is excited to announce a new curriculum for native plants: From Ponderosa to Prickly Pear · Exploring the Native Plants of New Mexico. This ecoregional curriculum, developed by the Southwest Program of the Institute for Applied Ecology, offers a complete study of native plants, and lessons encourage students to explore what is outside their door and to journey through the flora, ecology, landscape management, and cultural plant relationships unique to New Mexico and the Southwest. Stay tuned for an instructional webinar that will be held for educators in spring/summer, 2017. Download a PDF of the native plant curriculum here.
